Would Mike Wallace Make the Miami Dolphins Strong Contenders in the AFC East?

Nobody expected the Miami Dolphins to be contenders during the 2012 season, but they deserve some credit after the finishing the year with a 7-9 record. Depending on what moves take place during the offseason, there’s no reason why the Dolphins shouldn’t be able to compete for the AFC East title in 2012 with the New England Patriots and New York Jets–especially if they land a big play-making wide receiver like Mike Wallace.

The frustrated wideout of the Pittsburgh Steelers will be looking for a big pay day this offseason and with the amount of cap space they have–Miami needs to do whatever it takes to land him for the 2013 season. The Dolphins have made it clear they want Ryan Tannehill as their quarterback of the future, but for him to live up to his true potential–they need to provide him with more weapons than Brian Hartline in the passing game.

If the Dolphins were to land a player like Wallace, there’s no question he would have an immediate impact in the passing game.

It’s no secret Wallace has the potential to be one of the league’s top wide receivers in 2013 as he’s caught 196 passes for 3,286 yards and 26 touchdowns over his last three seasons. Wallace has always been one of the fastest players in the NFL as his speed makes it difficult for any opponent to defend and if he does end up with Miami this offseason–don’t be surprised if the Dolphins put up a fight for the division title next season.
